JoJo Siwa To Star In & Executive Produce New Musical Movie 'The J Team'

JoJo Siwa is starring in and executive producing a brand new musical called The J Team!

The 17-year-old entertainer announced the exciting news during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night (February 3).

Joining the young star in the movie include Tisha Campbell-Martin, Laura Soltis, Julia Marley, Kerrynton Jones and Kiara T. Romero. Michael Lembeck will direct a script by Eydie Faye, with Ron French as producer and Don Dunn as executive producer.

The new, original musical follows a young girl named JoJo (Siwa) whose life is turned upside down when her beloved dance coach Val (Soltis) decides to retire and is replaced by a sparkle-hating instructor named Poppy (Campbell-Martin).

Wanting to stay in the running for an upcoming dance competition, JoJo and her best friends, The Rubies (Jones, Romero), must try their hardest to abide by Poppy’s new, harsh rules. Realizing she cannot hide her sparkle or bow anymore JoJo is kicked out of her dance troupe and must rediscover what dancing means to her.

The J Team will feature six new songs from JoJo and more. She even shared a little video earlier in the week from inside the recording studio. Check it out below!

“I am so excited to be filming The J Team! It has so much singing and dancing! I can’t wait for everyone to hear all of my new music in the movie and see the big ending!” JoJo said in a statement.

JoJo is a big part of our family and the perfect superstar partner to kick off our Nickelodeon and Awesomeness Films slate. As we continue to grow our live action film studio business, we can’t wait to bring JoJo fans old and new a special story that’s inspirational, aspirational and full of heart. There will be something for everyone in this film,” Awesomeness and Nickelodeon Live-Action Film Studio head Syrinthia Studer added. This will be the first production under her leadership.

Earlier this month, JoJo was seen touching down in Vancouver, British Columbia, with her mom, where filming will begin later this month!
